PowerAG products provide nutrients to help maintain healthy plant tissues in cucurbits.
Cucurbits like melons, pumpkins, and squash need high fertility levels to maximize yields. These crops can use 150 lbs. Nitrogen, 45 lbs. Phosphorus, and 170 lbs. Potassium per acre, to produce a high yielding crop. Soil microbial health and pH are important factors in making the nutrients readily available.
Micronutrients like Boron, Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc are also important for growing high-quality fruit. AlphaPower MP is one of the products formulated to deliver these key elements to the crop. Nutrients should be applied on a weekly schedule throughout the season based on the crop’s specific needs.
